The London derby was the game of the week. Chelsea gave Tottenham problems at Wembley as Alonso put two into the back of the net. Manchester United with another monster week putting four goals beating Swansea, Southampton squeezing a win in the ninety third minute to beat West Ham, Stoke City beating Arsenal, Liverpool getting the three points against Crystal Palace, Leicester City looking like the champions from two years ago beating Brighton, Watford with two goals against Bournemouth, Burnley losing to West Brom, Huddersfield beating Newcasle, and Manchester City tying Everton one to one late in the game off of a poor defensive clearance.

I bring to you the top Fantasy Premier League players of gameweek two.


(G) – Butland – 21.75 points


(D) – Maguire – 23.75 points

(D) – Bailly – 25 points

(D) – Alonso– 28.5 points



(M) – Mahrez – 27 points

(M) – Pogba – 35 points



(F) – Jese – 22.5 points

(F) – Richarlison – 24 points

(F) – Chicharito – 30 points


The new Stoke City signing Jese scored on his debut this weekend versus Arsenal. Helping Stoke get a win and the three points.

Chicharito is back in the Premier League and looking good. A great signing for West Ham. He scored two goals this weekend. There will be many more goals to come from Chicha as the season goes on. West Ham has had a rough two games to start off the season and losing in the 93rd minute to Southampton doesn’t help but as soon as their new summer signings get accustomed to playing with each other they are going to be a big threat in the EPL.

Richarlison made his first start for Watford scoring one goal, taking six shots, and creating three good chances. He caused havoc on the left side while the Hornets defeated Bournemouth.

Big gameweek from Paul Pogba. Two assists, One goal, and two shots on target. That’s two goals in two games for him. Pogba put up the most points this week and I think we are going to see a lot more to come from him.

Could Riyad Mahrez be back. Well he didn’t got any where, he just didn’t have that big of a season last season. Mahrez had a pretty game this weekend though with two assists for Leicester. Leicester is really starting off much better than they did last year.

Sadio Mane with the only goal for Liverpool this weekend helping them come away with a win against Crystal Palace.

Another big gameweek for Henrikh Mhikitaryan. Another two assists making it four assists in two games. Mhiki is starting off really well.

Eric Bailly scored his first goal for Manchester United. Adding to beating they gave Swansea this weekend. Also keeping United’s second clean sheet of the season.

Marcos Alonso had a great game putting up 28.5 points and scoring two goals for Chelsea against Tottenham. Alonso plays as a defensive winger attacking along the sidelines. He’s a great defensive player and big threat on attack.

Leicester are having a pretty good start this season. Much better than how they started last season. Harry Maguire put in a goal this weekend and helped Leicester keep a clean sheet.

Jack Butland with six saves this weekend and keeping a clean sheet against Arsenal. A big help for Stoke City and a big win for them as well. Beating Arsenal one to nil.
